New Beer: Ballast Point, Left Hand, Lagunitas, 4204 Main St

Now in stock…

Ballast Point Aloha Sculpin
With Aloha Sculpin, we used Brux Trois yeast to turn our award-winning IPA into a tropical oasis, with bright and refreshing notes of mango, pineapple, and guava. This yeast also adds a slight haze to the beer, creating a smooth mouthfeel to round out its juicy character. Simply put, this is paradise in the palm of your hands.

Left Hand Juicy Goodness
Hazy Golden Ale with Tropical and citrus flavors from Fruity Hops. Hoppy and light with a tingly mouthfeel and fruity hop characteristics-perfect for the hop head and hop-adverse. Delve into the complexity of the hops and delight in its golden drinkability. Juicy goodness- it’s always in season.

Lagunitas Dark Swan
An experimentally hopped sour ale fermented with dark red wine grapes. Observers of yestercentury once doubted the existence of the Dark Swan, stating the fair-feathered fowl was the only color of its kind. Explorers eventually upended that theory, shocking the world and shining light on the Dark. This beer might just do the same. It’s a sour ale fermented with dark red wine grapes, giving it its uniquely deep and rich purple hue. Then it received the signature Lagunitas treatment with a healthy dose of experimental dry hops. This might just shock your taste buds! There just really isn’t anything else like the Dark Swan… it’s a dark purple hybrid ale the takes our house yeast and feeds it some Petite Sirah grapes to munch on. It’s smooth, slightly sour, and superbly strange. Give it a taste, if you dare!

Lagunitas Lucky 13
From the first day of the first mash of the first recipe in the first brewhouse in the first space to these coordinates on the cone of space-time; We have worked hard to walk in the footsteps of our hero brewers. Now we have found our own voice as brewers but our admiration for the Great Ones has not dimmed one bit. If we walked well down the hero’s path, perhaps we too have been an inspiration for others. Beer is a Bronze Age business and we feel honored to leave our footprints on it’s path into history- at the same time leaving our flavors on your buds. Obey those Buds! Thanks for your trust over the years and we hope you enjoy this specially brewed Hi-Gravity Auburn offering.

4204 Main St Blood Orange Radler
Blood Orange Radler – hand crafted beer blended with hand crafted malt soda. Blood orange and sweet malt make this warm weather treat extraordinary.

New Beer: 4 Hands, Schlafly, Weihenstephaner, Bur Oak

Now in stock…

4 Hands Contact High Juiced
The popular Pale Wheat Ale first arrived in 2012. It pours bright orange and is full of big citrus off the nose. The hop profile includes “copious” amounts of Pacific Northwest Hops and is dry hopped with fresh orange zest. The new variant is JUICED up with tangerine juice and zest, giving it a big citrusy aroma and crisp hop.

Schlafly Coconut Creme Ale
Coconut Creme Ale is brewed with fire-roasted coconuts to create this hazy, golden dessert beer yielding a sweet, smooth malty flavor.

Weihenstephaner Braupakt – collab with Sierra Nevada
This naturally cloudy amber Hefeweizen has a firm, creamy head and reveals fragrances of peach, apricot and citrus on the nose. The initial impression on the palate is of a bouquet of aromas, including subtle touches of banana plus refreshing grapefruit from the American Chinook hops. The fruity peach and apricot notes from the Amarillo hops are balanced by the gentle sweetness of the caramel malt. The beer has a delicate tartness that melds into a harmonious mouthfeel on the finish.

Bur Oak Lily
Cream ale with orange and raspberry. Some say that it almost tastes like an orange dreamsicle. Full-bodied and smooth, Lily has a soft finish.
